THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, MAY 16, 2013- PAGE 2

by Bill Robinson, Publisher

Area seniors will received much advice this month, however my favorite senior address offered the following advice to the graduates that are now heading into the real world . . . Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it! Rule 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president until you earn it. Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping, they call it opportunity. Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So, before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one. —CC— If I might offer a small bit of advice to seniors on what they should choose in life . . . CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY!

Andy Andrews recently wrote, �Beginning this very moment. I am a happy person, for I now truly understand the concept of happiness. Few others before me have been able to grasp the truth of the physical law that enables one to live happily every day. I know now that happiness is not an emotional phantom floating in and out of my life. Happiness is a choice. Happiness is the end result of certain thoughts and activities, which actually bring about a chemical reaction in my body. This reaction results in a euphoria, which, while elusive to some, is totally under my control. Today I will choose to be happy. I will greet each day with laughter. W ithin moments of awakening, I will laugh for seven seconds. After even such a small period of time, excitement has begun to flow through my bloodstream. I feel different. I am different! I am enthusiastic about the day. I am alert to its possibilities. I am happy! Laughter is an outward expression of enthusiasm, and I know that enthusiasm is the fuel that moves the world. I laugh throughout the day. I laugh while I am alone, and I laugh in conversation with others. People are drawn to me because I have laughter in my heart. The world belongs to the enthusiastic for people will follow them anywhere! Today I will choose to be happy. I will smile at every person I meet. My smile has become my calling card. It is, after all, the most potent weapon I possess. My smile has the strength to forge bonds, break ice, and calm storms. I will use my smile constantly. Because of my smile, the people with whom I come in contact on a daily basis will choose to further my causes and follow my leadership. I will always smile first. That particular display of a good attitude will tell others what I expect in return. My smile is the key to my emotional make up. A wise man once said, “I do not sing because I am happy; I am happy because I sing!� When I choose to smile, I become the master of my emotions. Discouragement, despair, frustration, and fear will always wither when confronted by my smile. The power of who I am is displayed when I smile. Today I will choose to be happy. I am the possessor of a grateful spirit. In the past, I have found discouragement in particular situations, until I compared the condition of my life to others less

fortunate. Just as a fresh breeze cleans smoke from the air, so does a grateful spirit remove the cloud of despair. It is impossible for the seeds of depression to take root in a thankful heart. My God has bestowed upon me many gifts, and for these I will remember to be grateful. Too many times I have offered up the prayers of a beggar, always asking for more and forgetting my thanks. I do not wish to be seen as a greedy child, unappreciative, and disrespectful. I am grateful for sight and sound and breath. If ever in my life there is a pouring out of blessings

beyond that, then I will be grateful for the miracle of abundance. I will greet each day with laughter. I will smile

at every person I meet. I am the possessor of a grateful spirit. Today, I will choose to be happy.

Threads of Life by Cleo Emerson LeVally Memories

As I sat down to write my the past began to flow through column this week, pictures of my mind. A lot of the pictures were of my school days and growing up on Allen. One picture that I will always 62+ Senior Housing cherish is that of Bessie Brown, one of our teachers in grade school. Near the end school day, she would pull out a book by Noel Chandler Harris and read stories about Brier Rabbit, Flit-The Flying Squirrel, Mr. Coon, Gawky-The Crow, Monthly Rent Leasing Old Bear Face-the Red Fox Special and many, many others to the FIRST 3 Water, Sewer & Trash Included MONTHS class.

banquet each year, I think, for the Home Economics Class. I can’t remember why we had that one. Was it to show off the foods we had learned to cook? Well, I do remember that the members of the class invited business people to be their guests. And here’s a switch. The business people bought a ticket for themselves and the student who had invited them. This must have been to pay for the food. I do remember the students sat with their guests at the banquet.

I remember watching the last football game of the season on Thanksgiving Day in Allen. There was no stadium. No place to sit down. Everyone stood along the sidelines. They walked up and down as the play progressed. Most of the years, it was very, very cold. But everyone stayed for the entire game, all bungled up to stay warm. I think the stadium was built in the last years of my high school. Memories are very precious. Cherish them as I do.

There’s no better way to go look at America than to take to the highway and, well, have a look. I needed to go look at some of my grandkids anyway so Pat and I left out on a cold Friday morning heading northwest to St. Louis, Missouri. East of Tulsa we saw a large cloud bank and pretty soon our sun had disappeared. As it turned it the ball of heat was to go missing for three days as we kept driving bravely down I-44. But just what could it do? Snow? Here it was, May 3 rd—the grass is green, the trees leafed out and it’s supposed to be summertime, ain’t it? Before we got to Joplin the

The A merican Road

ground was covered with a few inches of snow and it was starting to blow in clouds across the highway. The temperature dropped from 45 to 33 and did it pretty fast. We splattered our way on into St. Louis in time to attend a stage production of “Twelve Angry Men” starring….who else? My own grandson Alec among others. Before driving out of St Louis the next week we visited a few sites of interest including the transportation museum which has a great display of old trains and automobiles. Later on, like

on Wednesday morning after winning a few games of dominoes, we pointed our trusty car east once more and were soon bouncing along some very rough Illinois highways—by far the worse roads we drove on so far this trip. We lunched in Paducah, spent a night near Nashville and drove next to Lake City, Florida for another night at a Comfort Inn. The next day we slipped into Deland, Florida for Lindsey Bullard’s graduation from Stetson University. There in Deland we grouped

up with a lot of in-laws, friends and relations for several good meals and an exceptionally good time. In time, we remembered her graduation and all of us made a pretty good crowd of our own. Airline schedules on the following Sunday caused a lot of hasty exits by the Reeves and other Bullard’s leaving Pat and me looking at our bug splattered car out in the 92 degree heat of Florida wondering what we had done. But we had a schedule and were soon packing up and hitting I-95-South. This time we

Light from God’s Word

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ

Do you have faith in God and Jesus Christ? If you claim to have faith in God, what kind of faith is it? The Scriptures speak of people having several different kinds of faith. Some are: Genuine faith (2 Timothy 1:5), a great faith (Matthew 8:10), a little faith (Matthew 8:26), a weak faith (Romans 14:1), an increasing faith (2 Corinthians 10:15), a steadfast faith (1 Peter 5:9), an incom-

plete faith (1 Thess. 3:10), a shipwrecked faith (1 Timothy 1:1) and a dead faith (James 2:26). Perhaps, we should ask ourselves, “What kind of faith do I have?” According to a Gallup poll in 2011, 91% of people in the U.S. believe in God. But The Barna Research Group reported that in 2005 only “47% of American adults said that they attend church in a given weekend.” Now, let’s get this straight, 91% claim to believe, but only 47% regularly go to church! Does that mean that not all who believe have faith in God? Or, maybe as in the Scriptures people have different kinds of faith. What kind of faith do those people have who do not regularly attend church to draw near to God in worship? Would it be a “dead” faith?

as God commands, his faith is “dead.” If you have a serious disease and your doctor prescribes some medicine that he says will cure it, but you do not take the medicine, doesn’t that mean you do not have faith in your doctor or else your faith in him is “dead?” If we have a believing, trusting faith in God, will we not do as He commands?

James wrote of a “dead” faith saying that a “dead” faith is one that does not do the work God wants. “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26) Isn’t he saying that a “dead faith” is one that does not work; it doesn’t do deeds that demonstrate faith. So, if a person says he believes in God, but he does not trust God by doing

took the new graduate, Lindsey Bullard, with us. We were off to visit Colton Bullard down at Coral Springs. Colton can’t live by himself nor can he speak or do much to take care of himself. He is autistic. Colton lives in a small group facility with a few other boys he has lived with now for a few years. He is well cared for and I think enjoys his life as much as is possible considering the circumstances. Colton was glad to see us and we him. Seeing my grandson again was well worth the long drive. Our visit passed quickly as we enjoyed that quality time in the beautiful outdoors of Coral Springs. We all spent the night in a nearby Comfort Inn in Lantana, Florida. We arose the next morning and drove Lindsey back up I-95 to Deland. Later, we headed on north in the general direction of a place called Dauphin Island, Alabama wondering how far we’d get and where we might discover another place to spend the night. That was a sort of hassle before we landed in Marianna in the Florida panhandle. A good bit of seafood later that evening from Ruby Tuesday’s put me back on good speaking terms with my tummy as we prepared to go on to the Island the next morning. Two or three have asked if I planned on seeing Cousin Gator down at Immokalee, Florida but I decided to leave Gator be and instead concentrate on this other cousin, Jimmy Bullard. We share similar political views and I’m pretty sure, he will be free to put us up a few days and even supply some bologna sandwiches and good conversation. Later we’ll visit Don and Cathy Ellis in Brewton, Ala. before heading back to Allen. Have a good weekend and be sure and go to your church Sunday. Wayne Bullard, DPh waynebullard@sbcglobal. net

Eleven Weeks in Coalgate would encourage more graduating students to choose a similar career and improve the distribution of doctors throughout the State. In practice, I suspect that experiencing the life of an overworked solitary practitioner for a few weeks discouraged more students than it attracted.

Weeks in Coalgate from Page 6

(That feeling was probably a hangover from when I worked in my aunt’s weekly newspaper in Texas.) Unfortunately, I hadn’t gathered much of significance other than that information in the plane suggested they had come from Oklahoma City. The staff left me feeling as useless as I really was. “Let’s see what we can find out from the Highway Patrol,” one said as he turned away. I walked down to the bus station and bought a ticket back to Calvin. (I believe it was still 35 cents in those days). Fortunately, the bus had just pulled in. (I wonder now why Lewis Blackwell didn’t offered to follow the ambulance and give me a ride back home. I guess he had a date.) Dr. Byrd was sometimes moved to comment (privately) on the family situations of some of our patients. One day a lady from a community farther south came in seeking a diagnosis for her somewhat feeble husband. She had in her hand one of those cheap insurance policies that promised lump sum payments if, and only if, the holder of the policy was found to have one of some seven dread diseases (polio, cancer, leukemia, encephalitis, etc.). It seems a doctor in Durant had told her he was anemic, and she was sure that was just a step away from being leukemic. I wondered if in her head, she didn’t already have that money spent. Anyway, after another visit and various studies (including a barium enema) we could only conclude that the man was malnourished. I wondered if maybe the wife was a poor cook. Nowadays, I would probably check him out for Alzheimer’s. Certainly, the man himself had very little to say, but it seemed the wife never gave him much opportunity to open his mouth. She kept up a continuous patter and hovered over him throughout the examination, even accompanying him into the bathroom after the barium enema. As they left after their final visit, we returned to Dr. Byrd’s office where he remarked, “I’m sure that man’s going to Heaven.” “Why do you say that?” I asked. “Because he’s already had his Hell here on earth.” What was probably the most disturbing happening in the Byrd Clinic that summer had little to do with patient care. Saturday morning was well underway when I swabbed the throat of a little girl and made a smear on a glass slide (to look for diphtheria organisms). To make a Gram stain one needs to heat the slide slightly, and for that sat a Bunsen gas burner on the kitchen counter. Dr. Byrd was coming through the kitchen on his way to the x-ray developing closet just as I lit the burner. He stopped, sniffed the air, and said, “I smell gas,” whereupon he immediately pulled out his cigarette lighter, lit it, and began to run it along the tubing from the burner, looking for a leak. He found it at the valve to which the tubing was connected, and a large flame blazed up, igniting the window curtains. Wallace was quite conscious of fire hazards and had several small glass containers of carbon tetrachloride hanging on the walls. Theoretically, heat would cause them to open and spew liquid on any flames. Strangely, there was not a single conventional fire extinguisher around. Instead, the doctor jerked one of the containers off the wall and threw it at the flames. It just bounced off the window frame and fell into the sink, still intact. I

threw the second one and missed entirely as mine went out the open window. Dr. Byrd’s second try did break—when it fell on the floor. That was enough carbon tet to convert the linoleum into a skating rink on which I took a hard seat when I reentered the room with yet another container. About that time the firemen arrived and one turned off the gas outside while another wet down a hand towel and smothered the flames. Then we could see the problem was that the valve had been pushed against the wall enough to relax the spring tension in it and let the gas flow out around the handle. That was readily repaired, but the rest of the mess wasn’t cleaned up until the janitor couple came that evening. By then Dr. Byrd was a bundle of nerves and had gone out to lie on the front porch until he could calm down and get his breath back. He then looked up to see what seemed like half of Coal County, in town for their Saturday shopping, staring at him. With some embarrassment, he jumped up and ran around to the back steps to continue his recovery. I could picture some of what was running through his mind. He was probably in debt for the building, the furniture, and that expensive x-ray equipment and was wondering how and with what he was going to continue in practice if the house should burn down. A few hours passed before he felt well enough to get back to seeing patients again. Meanwhile, I struggled along with my very limited knowledge and experience to take care of those who didn’t want to wait any longer (and perhaps miss the afternoon picture show?). Two women worked in the clinic office. One, Bessie, was a mother with children. Without her, I suspect the Clinic would have gone bankrupt for she carefully kept up with the financial accounts despite have to put them down and act like an office nurse whenever the doctor needed a chaperone. The other, Mary Ann, was fresh out of high school and served mainly as a receptionist. She wasn’t bad looking, but I never got romantically interested in her. Nevertheless, from day one the laboratory technician teased her about pursuing me. Consequently, she was always very careful to avoid being alone with me and would certainly never come near my bedroom. On the last day, however, she seemed to forget herself as she wandered into that room as I was packing up to leave. After chatting briefly about my plans, she turned to go back out through the kitchen just as my eye fell on a lady’s stocking, rolled up and with a garter inside hidden among my socks—no doubt something my aunt in Calvin had removed and tossed helter skelter as I was packing to leave home eleven weeks earlier. I immediately snatched up the stocking and garter (the devil made me do it) and followed Mary Ann out, calling, “Mary Ann, you forgot something!” Of course, the lab tech crowed with delight while Mary Ann blushed and ran to hide behind Bessie. I wonder whether she ever forgave me. The student who followed me was not pleased with the arrangement in Coalgate, and no other ever followed him. I continued to stop in Coalgate from time to time and visit with the Byrds as long as I remained in Oklahoma. Since his father had died of a myocardial infarction when only in his fifties, Wallace fully expected to do the same, and probably no one was more surprised than he when he reached eighty still working.

Atwood Church of the Nazarene

Sunday was a beautiful Mother’s Day.  We honored our mothers with flowers.   Jami Cassell was the youngest present, Ruth DeShields was the oldest, and Irene Seeley received the basket for having the most children there.  All mothers received potted plants when the service was over.  We appreciate the Christian influence that these mothers have had and are having with their children.  They will never regret bringing them to church.  Our Atwood quartet sang “If I Could Only Hear My Mother Pray Again” for the special.  Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Proverbs 31:25-31 and entitled “A Mother Worthy of Praise.”  A good mother has her priorities in order.  Her number one priority is her relationship with God.  It is out of this relationship that all others flow.  It is impossible to love others as we ought without loving God first.  She makes her family a priority.  Her primary role as a mother is to lead her children to faith in God.  She is a blessing to her family.  She exhibits beauty that is far more than skin deep.  Our world needs more mothers who exhibit strong moral character.  She knows what she believes and lives it out.  She trusts in God no matter what the world may throw at her.  A woman dedicated to God and acquainted with His Word will learn to live wisely.  A good mother will learn to laugh.  Laughter is a good medicine.  Not a single mom has received all the recognition she deserves.  We often fail to adequately express our appreciation.  While you may not always feel loved or appreciated here, your contributions to the kingdom of God will be remembered in the courts of heaven.  Live for that day! We want to remind you about our Bible School June 3-7 from 9-11:30.  Our theme is:  “Kingdom Rock-Where Kids Stand Strong for God.”  It is for ages 4-12.  Plan on bringing your children.  We will have music, crafts, experiments, snacks and Bible study with Chaddar Chipmunk.
